I'm curious to see where Celebi will end up taking us, to the past again or the future.

The only way I see this being interesting is if Chloe might be involved
Well, after this week we're gonna get a Koharu's episode (I hope). Maybe she decides to join after that one!

JN029 is definitely a Chloe story, Chloe is so underused at the moment I hope she starts spending more time with Ash and Goh on their adventures

Celebi had:

The Joy Special with Richie in Pokemon Chronicles.
The Pokemon Ranger episode in Battle Frontier.
The time travel two parter in Sun& Moon and I blame him for the terrible Pikachu episode. Also this was last year.
Multiple cameos.
Movies 4 ,13 and 23.

May not seem a lot but Jirachi for example only got Movie 6 and one cr**py filler in Decolora of all places.

Manaphy had movie 9 and a cameo on the last Sun and Moon episode.

Meloetta had an entire arc but no movie.

Diance got a movie but no episode.

Magearna got a movie and an arc.

Mew got two movies, multiple cameos and only JN01 dedicated to him he is just an obsession for the moment.

Of course this is due to Celebi having the unique abilty to travel trough time but still it's a huge difference

Joe approves, and so do I.
But I'm afraid this episode will show us what the writers have planned for Go and mythicals and presumably legends, I'd say it's impossible for them to make the trash decision of letting Go catch them, even after they've shown us their amazing well thought-out ideas for Go *wink wink* .
Imagine this website after Go catches celebi with god-ball throw, it'll be annoying to see celebi appearing more than once in this series.
I've typed Go 5 times in one post.

It would be interesting if Celebi and Satoshi travel back in time to different time periods in his life. Like when he was a kid. Maybe they could adress the plot with his dad abandoning him and his mom from Shudo's old novelization.

Or they could show the most important friendship moments that Satoshi had with all of his past companions which will make him realize that he haven't kept in touch with them and that they have become distant over time. This could motivate him to meet them in future episodes while traveling the world and introduce them to Gou since he is implied to have trouble socializing with others and making friends.

But I seriously doubt that this will happen. :p

I think honestly to the Summer Camp with Serena, but that is wishfull thinking. If they go to the past with companions, they can re-use audio.

The title gives me Ash and Gary vibes.

But... what if Celebi helps Ash remember his promise to Pidgeot and he goes back in time to retrieve it (And capture the Fearow in the process).

Or its the start of the rebooted GS ball storyline.

Oh please no... I still remember the last promise the writers gave us in SS009...

I swear, if this time they give us a random COTD who made a 'timeless promise' with Celebi again...

I never realized until it was spelled out how much screen time Celebii gets compared compared to some of the other Mythicals.

It's best to go in assuming this until we get a summary.

Summary courtesy of Dephender on Serebii

Three years ago, Go met a young boy named Tokio on a family trip to Hiwada Town in the Jouto region. Tokio was searching for the Mythical Pokémon Celebi, and the two kindred spirits decided to search for it together, but Celebi turned out to not be all that easy to find. The two of them parted ways, promising to meet up again the next day to continue their search, but Tokio never showed up at the spot they had promised to meet that day. Flash forward to present day, when Go once again visits Hiwada Town and ends up encountering...
